Wooden puppet carving workshops
Specialist puppet courses for adults. Suitable for first time carvers or experienced makers.
Comments from past students: “Most enjoyable… excellent course… covered all aspects in a short time… very good tuition… the best course I have been on.”
PUPPET COURSES in Devon for 2022.
At last I have worked out what puppet wood carving courses I will run this year in Devon.
I have built a new workshop shed, so I can run courses at different times of year, rather than only in July/August when I used to hire a school woodwork room.
There is space in my shed for only 4 students… so do book as soon as you can.
I hope to see you this year!
I am offering a range of course lengths with different content:
- 3 DAYS: An introduction for beginners.
- 4 DAYS: Make a simple carved wooden puppet. SOLD OUT.
- 5 DAYS: Carve a puppet. Still places.
- 6 DAYS: Design and carve a puppet. SOLD OUT.
- 7 DAYS: SOLD OUT. Only for students who have been on a previous course with me: complete a puppet – paint, costume, wig and perform your puppet for a small audience.
Click each of these for details:
